News: Koehler appears to have locked down the Marlins' final rotation spot, MLB.com reports.
Impact: Despite having a less-than-stellar camp, Manager Mike Redmond indicated that the team was "probably set with those five guys." David Phelps and Brad Hand have been working as starters during Grapefruit League action and both appear headed to the bullpen following strong performances. Redmond did leave open the possibility that things could change prior to Opening Day but for now Koehler's role in the rotation is safe.
Rotowire: Mar 19 / 8:33p ET
News: Koehler allowed four runs (three earned) while struggling through four innings Thursday in a start against the Braves.
Impact: Koehler allowed six hits and walked three during his longest outing of the spring. After tossing 191.1 solid innings for the Marlins last year, Koehler finds himself being outraced for the fifth spot in the rotation by David Phelps and Brad Hand. Both Phelps and Hand have experience pitching out of the bullpen, but if Miami puts much stock in spring performances, Koehler could be the odd man out come Opening Day.
